10 Ways To Know You're Ready For Spring Break

May the force be with us in this upcoming week and we survive to make it to Spring Break without taking any L's.

10 Ways To Know You're Ready For Spring Break

Spring Break is days away. For those of you like me, I have been waiting since the end of Winter Break. I dream of getting on the plane and flying back home so I can do two things: lay around and watch Netflix, most importantly without distractions. I'm already in the Spring Break spirit and don't plan on doing anything else rather than preparing for Spring Break. If you're Spring Break is coming up, you can understand these struggles.

1. Homework is not a thing anymore

If you have homework, let's be honest: you don't want to do it. Usually, I don't enjoy doing my homework but for some reason the urge to resist homework heightens during this time. I definitely know I need to be doing my homework, but it just becomes so much more tedious. Can I just go back home and cuddle up in my bed already?

2. Start shopping for swimsuits

Even if you are going home to lay in bed for seven days (this will be me) for someone reason shopping for swimsuits starts around this time. It seems almost like a right of passage to do so doesn't it?

3. Getting the island vibes into full effects

Spring Break means getting away, maybe traveling to a tropical island, or at least some place with much warmer weather than where you are now. In order to fully get into the Spring Break spirit you have to have all of the vibes including the music. As soon as the calendar shows Spring Break being less than 10 days away, I immediately start blasting Machel Montano to get me in the mood.

4. Start packing a week in advance

Packing a week in advance always ends up happening to me. Even if I know I will probably change half of the outfits in my suitcase, it's always good to know you're prepared (plus packing can also distract you from doing homework) Packing gets me even more excited to leave than anything else.

5. Thinking about one thing only: warmer weather

The weather this winter has been extremely tricky. It goes from summer to winter, to spring weather, and back to winter again. Warmer weather is the only thing I want to be in. Whether it be a tropical island or taking a trip out west to the sunny state of California, I need a constant temperature of 70 and above just for a week.

6. Making sure that you are somewhat Spring Break body ready

This means going to the gym and somewhat attempting to make sure you are eating healthy so you can pig out while on vacation and don't feel horrible about it. It's time to hit the gym and try to get that six pack in tact.

7. Brain has turned on another switch: Vacation mode

I am already in vacation mode, which is sad but true. My mind has already shut itself off and the only thing I'm thinking of is going back home, jumping in my bed and going straight to sleep.

8. Searching for shows binge watch

Netflix will forever be my favorite form of entertainment. I can re-watch my favorite classic movies and my favorite shows. I am always watching new shows to watch. Spring Break is the perfect time for everyone to find their shows and binge watch them over the week. I know I will at least be watching 3 shows in full.

9.You're ready to get away from anyone and anything that reminds you of school

At this point, school is the last thing on my mind. Spring Break honestly could not get here fast enough. I simply want to take a day and just escape from everything and everyone that has been bothering me. If we're being completely honest, there's only so much school a person can take... I think we all just need a break.

10. When you have a ton of things to do before Friday but they won't get done until Thursday night

I definitely have a lot of things to do before leaving for vacation, but procrastination has been a major key for me. I need to pack and make sure my homework is turned it, but knowing me it probably won't get done until Thursday night.

May the force be with us in this upcoming week and we survive to make it to Spring Break without taking any L's.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
